For the hop lover in you, this 100 IBU beer uses Columbus and Amarillo hops which exude explosive aromas of citrus, cherry, oak and rose water. Sweetness mingles with alcohol and hops in a lenghty aftertaste.

750 ml bottle. Pours an opaque orange amber with a resilient white head. Smells of citrus. Taste is sweet biscuit, fruits, wood. Nice bitter punch in the finish, reminiscent of citrus, especially orange. Light to medium-bodied. I was expecting more bitter, but it still felt nice.

Liquide ambré d’apparence trouble, couronné d’une mousse beige persistante, dessinant de beaux motifs de dentelle aux parois du verre. Des arômes assez forts d’agrumes, d’ananas, de cerise et de houblon valsent jusqu’au nez. En bouche, l’amertume, bien collante, tient le haut du pavé. Une texture huileuse et des vapeurs d’alcool tapent au palais. Cette bière nous réchauffe bien. (167-280112)

On tap at BDT.
Appearance : Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Great malt with great floral and fresh hops. Really nice nose.
Taste : Nice white sugar with fresh citrusy hops. Leafy and floral too. Quite malty. Finish malty and hoppy. Quite bitter and rather warm. Quite fruity.
Overall : Nice stuff. Sharp bitterness. Very nice hops and nice malt. Great balance between hops and malt. I like that there’s not too much caramel. Among the best Quebecois IPAs. Very tasty. Awesome nose.

sseb69 (2009) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 En fût au BDT. 9.5%. Bouteille 750 ml. Couleur ambrée-jaune orangé, mousse blanche. Arôme de houblon, de citron, de malt et d’herbes fraiche. En bouche, houblon frais, fleurs, notes de malt. Finale amère. Très bonne, l’alcool est très bien cachée par l’ensemble. Excellente bière.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Liquide légèrement orangé, surmonté d’une mousse blanche à la belle dentelle. Au nez, agrumes (surtout les ananas en fait), pommes et sucre. Très fruitée en bouche, les sucres résiduels sont présents mais bien incorporés au mélange, au demeurant lui-même étonnamment bien balancé. C’est une double IPA surprenante, qui ne tombe pas dans le piège de la surenchère du sucre, qui emploie merveilleusement bien les houblons qui la composent.
